Semi Truck Accidents
Accident victims can recover their losses from the party at fault or their insurer. However, they should not attempt it without the help of an experienced truck accident attorney. Whether the truck driver is at fault for the accident or a third party, finding proof will not be easy.

A commercial truck easily weighs over 80,000 pounds. This means a commercial freight truck is almost twenty times heavier than a normal passenger car. Even though truck drivers need to work only 10 hours a day, most of them tend to do overtime for extra cash. Such a driver becomes vulnerable to accidents and a threat to the safety of other drivers using the road network.
